When it's finally available, Asus' Eee Pad Transformer Prime will be inevitably compared and reviewed against the iPad. And one feature that will certainly help its cause is this Smart Cover that takes a more intricate folding approach to Apple's original design.

Revealed on Amazon's German site, the $53 Smart Cover doesn't do much in the naming department to differentiate itself from Apple's offering. But instead of simply rolling up to form a stand when not in use, the sides fold in, letting it prop up the Transformer Prime in either landscape or portrait orientations. Whether or not it will work better than Apple's original design remains to be seen, but at least Asus is putting a little effort into trying to differentiate their tablet and accessories.

Does this actually attach to the Prime? like how the Smart cover does with the ipad? If so where is the Original TF's version! if not, then its just a table stand, something I have made myself with cardboard and shelving foam for grip. Cost all of 2 dollars and took 15minutes.
